Little Chick Thumbprint Cookies
Servings: 16 Yield: 16 cookies Active Time 40 mins Total Time 1 hr


  • 1/2 16 1/2 ounce roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 3/4 cup canned chocolate frosting
  • Orange and black edible food coloring markers
  • 16 - 48 Jordan almonds
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut, toasted

Make It

1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the cookie dough into 8 slices, then halve each slice. Roll the dough portions into balls, then flatten each slightly into a 1- to 1 1/2-inch round and arrange on the prepared sheet.

2. Bake until light golden, about 8 minutes. While the cookies are still warm, use the back of a teaspoon to make a small indent in the center of each. Let cool completely.

3. Use the food writers to add eyes and a beak to each Jordan almond. Place the frosting in a piping bag fitted with a large round tip. Spoon a generous amount of frosting in the center of the cookie, then cover the "nest" with shredded coconut. Press one, two, or three almond chicks into place.
